Chiles Offshore Wins Award

Wednesday, March 20, 2002
The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) awarded Chiles Offshore the 2002 Safety in Seas Award, recognizing their outstanding contribution to the improvement of safe operating procedures in the offshore industries. Selected by a blue ribbon panel of judges composed of representatives from the US Coast Guard, the Minerals Management Service and the National Academy of Sciences Marine Sciences Board, Chiles Offshore was recognized for their complete, rig- specific orientation, and the CrewMaster(TM) rig-based progressive training program. CrewMaster(TM) is part of Chiles Offshore's comprehensive professional development program, known as SkillMaster(TM). Acknowledging the significant contributions made by modern-day pioneers in their pursuit of the ocean frontier, Compass Publications, Inc., publishers of Sea Technology magazine, established the NOIA Safety in Seas Award in 1978. The award recognizes the excellence among those who, by their actions, design or influence, have contributed to improving the safety of life offshore. The award, now in it's 24th year, continues to serve as a testimony to the high standards associated with the rapid growth of the ocean industries.
